The New England Patriots lost on the road against the Miami Dolphins this afternoon and Tom Brady got beat up a bit. On one play in particular, Ndamukong Suh hit Brady in the lower body and seemed to hurt the Patriots’ star quarterback. Following the game, it appeared that Brady had a limp.
Check out this video of him leaving his post-game press conference for further proof that he had a limp.
Brady suffered a torn ACL during the 2008 NFL season on a hit to his lower body. He limped off the field at that point as well, although this injury isn’t expected to be even close to as serious as a torn ACL.
There is still a lot of concern from the Patriots and their fans about what this injury could be. New England failed to lock up the No. 1 seed in the AFC due to their loss and there is not much of a chance that the Patriots could make a run in the postseason without Brady. He is the heart and soul of their team and there is no doubt that the next week will see a lot of attention paid to Brady.
Expect to see him end up being just fine, although this is certainly a concern for the Patriots at the wrong time.
